1.     Minimalist or Maximalist? 

2.     When you last packed to move, what was the thing or collection of things you couldn’t leave without? 

3.     Would you send us a high resolution image (or images) of the object (or objects) you described (on a blank surface or, even better, in its/their natural environment)?
